Food Trip: Makchang

It’s Saturday night!  Time to eat!!!

With the kids left at home, we are free to satisfy our taste buds and bellies!

We are here now in Makchang located in Adriatico Street, Malate!


Even at 9pm, the place is bustling!  We got there and we were welcomed by Makchang’s staff with delight in the sound of their voices.  All through out the evening, the staff were so hyper and so friendly even if they are exhausted.  I know they are, they look like it.  But they pretend they are not and still do their job pretty well.  Their service is fast and I really like it.  Kudos to all Makchang’s staff, your boss is lucky to have all of you!

Now moving on to how Makchang looks.


This is one corner inside.  In a matter of minutes, those seats are already filled.  The interior is simple and there’s no out of this world designs whatsoever.  Only out of this world food! 

On one of its walls, this huge menu is posted! 


We ordered 1 each of the Pork Variety. 


The first one to be grilled is the Pork Galbi. 


Of the 3, this is the best.  It has been marinated already.  The fat on the side of the meat adds to the taste. 

Looking good…


Love at first bite.  Juicy and tasty!


Up next on the grill was the Galmekisal.    Then the Samkyupsal.  Both are not marinated.  So the taste will really depend on how fresh the meat is.  Unfortunately, these 2 doesn’t fare much with the Pork Galbi.  We know what to order next time!  All Pork Galbi!



Though lacking in taste, the meat’s tender and not chewy.  You just have to use the side dishes so every bite will not taste bland.

And Makchang, by far, has the largest selection of side dishes.  All of these are unlimited! 


According to my sister in law who loves Kimchi, Makchang’s is good.


This is good also.  It’s like a Salad.


Oh and let’s not forget the sauces.  My every bite will not be complete without dipping into these sauces.  I love how it tastes salty and sweet at the same time.  Good match for the non-marinated meat.


Aside from the barbeque dishes, we ordered Korean congee also.  I forgot what it’s called.  This is something to try also.  Rice and veggies with Soup, to put it simpler.


Our Makchang experience made a mark in our tummies.  We had fun, our tummies had fun as well.  Definitely going back to try their beef barbeques! 

What are you waiting for?
